little Adventures : Cornwall – polkerris and Charlestown

After many hours editing photos of mine and Chris’s Cornish adventure I’ve decided to share them in all different orders not so much like a diary but snapshots of what we got upto and where, So there is no pressure to produce super shiny blog posts.

 Now I lived in Cornwall for nearly four years whilst studying for my degree at Falmouth University and I hadn’t been back in over four years so the prospect of hitting up some of my favorite secluded (or I should say not so secluded now, crazy how much can change in a few years) spots and getting to share them with Chris was the best.  

One of my happiest memories whilst I lived down in Cornwall was my family occasionally coming to visit and explore the great outdoors so I always had the idea of revisiting Polkerris  (meaning fortified pool so you get the idea) which is a small rather secluded cove on the East side of the St Austell Bay and would completely recommend it to anyone visiting that part of Cornwall. Many an hour jumping off the harbor wall into blue depths below. Me and Chris snuck up onto the rocks were we surrounded my little boys pretending to fight off Zombies, standard beach games and we just admired the view before the hour on the parking ran out. The weather was perfect and probably the first time this year I have felt proper warmth from the sun, so we adventured up onto the Harbor wall to take a few snaps and dangle our legs over the side.

We couldn’t pass up heading into Charlestown for a stroll around and an ice cream, possibly the hardest decision we came across on the trip we deciding what flavor to have. I went for the bubble gum as that was always a favorite from this shop as a child and Chris opted for the Salted Caramel – not going to lie was a little jealous sounded amazing! 

We wandered around Charlestown which I did find rather overwhelmed with tourists and day trips ( I know we were also day trippers) but it had completely changed since I had visited when I was about Thirteen maybe its the love for the new adaption of the BBC program Poldark that has bought people by, either way it was bustling with visitors which I guess is really nice for the Cornish tourist industry. Me and Chris had practically turned up when the “season” had started which was nice and things were coming to life.

Yes I am wearing stripes again, this trip had become notorious with multi outfit change overs (for both me and Chris) which is quite funny, as it would mean me changing from one striped top to the next in the same day. Ahh which striped top will I be wearing in the next post!? You’ll just have to come back soon and see.

    I'm very envious that you went to uni in cornwall, I'm totally in love with it. My husband and I have been going to cornwall on holiday for the last 9 years (not long after we first got together) we take our two westie dogs. As soon as we drive into cornwall and I see the sea I feel all my stress and pressure disappear it truly is a wonderful place.
